May is Military Appreciation Month, and Bates is very proud to partner with the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. Bates has partnered with the GR Home for the past two years supporting their annual summer carnival. It is a great way to give back and spend time with military veterans and their families. The Bates team is proud to honor this ongoing commitment to the GR Home and excited to see them all again this July at the carnival!
The Grand Rapids Home for Veterans is a long-term care state veterans home. It was originally founded in response to the needs of veterans in the aftermath of the civil war. GRHV continues the tradition of serving the needs of Michigan’s veterans today, changing and adapting to the needs of the current and future veteran populations. GRHV provides in-house pharmacy, rehab therapy, pastoral care and specialty clinics, such as dental and visions care. Residents also have opportunities to participate in spiritual, social, recreational, and educational activities.
